    amen to this post !! these are something the church needs desperately to accept and look at as a great thing. some are afraid to accept that we are saved by grace for the purpose of being set apart for Gods use. Holiness needs to first be accepted as a truth of Gods word and it is very much so, just as true as saved by grace through faith. we are saved by grace for the purposes you have pointed to above. Great post God bless you
